Kaidence Donda West is reportedly the name for Kim and Kanye’s baby girl, and, if true, that name would seem to have special significance to both parents.
After the baby arrived five weeks early, Kim and Kanye appeared stalled as what to name their little girl. Reports said they were at odds over what name to pick, but, on Tuesday, reports emerged that the couple chosen Kaidence Donda West.
If it’s true, the name would have special significance to Kanye West. His late mother, whom he was very close to, was named Donda West. Kanye wrote a song for her, “Hey Mama,” and took her death very hard.
For Kim Kardashian, the name Kaidence Donda West would follow in the family tradition of picking a name that starts with “K.” Kim had reportedly confided in a friend earlier this week that the baby’s name would indeed by a “K” name.
Granted, the source for the name Kim Kardashian and Kanye West chose is not exactly ironclad. The report came from MediaTakeOut, a celebrity news blog that claimed its information came via “a tip from a nurse at Los Angeles’ Cedars Sinai Hospital.” Other media outlets have taken shots at the credibility of MediaTakeOut, which reportedly tends to get rumors wrong a lot.
“The baby is beyond beautiful. Everything we expected … I’m so happy for the couple. I’m so excited for my best friend to have this amazing gift and for us to continue this journey together.”
With both mom and dad very media savvy, it seems people won’t know for sure if Kim and Kanye’s baby is named Kaidence Donda West until one of them tweets about it.
